Doc Holiday backs Milt and Jeanne Dirken with a magic potion (petroleum jelly) from a grease pit on their land. He markets it, sells shares, and has the property blocked off preventing travelers from crossing the grease pit which is right on their private road out of town. Wyatt with the help of Mrs. Holiday, finds a solution to alleviate the risk of a gunfight with Jim Dunn's outfit by having Mayor Jim Kelley purchase the land and product from the Dirkens, with Doc's own money ($40,000.00) which he had given to Mrs. Holiday to leave him for good.
